Celtic play on after Legia denied

18 August 2014 04:01

Celtic will compete in the Champions League play-offs after the Court of Arbitration for Sport rejected Legia Warsaw's bid to be provisionally reinstated.

Legia took their case to the Swiss-based court after their punishment for fielding an ineligible player was rejected by UEFA's appeal body on Thursday.

However, CAS confirmed on Monday afternoon it had denied Legia's initial request and that Ronnie Deila's Celtic will play Maribor in Slovenia on Wednesday night.
